. but hillary clinton was never just some cabinet secretary, right? well, today, four years later at the start of the second term of the obama administration it was a similar scene for hillary clinton as she said goodbye to the same state department employees from almost the same spot where they welcomed her four years ago. >> now it's my great honor to introduce one last time the 67th secretary of state of the united states of america, hillary rodham clinton. [ cheering and applause ] >> oh. >> secretary clinton still greeted like a rock star today at the agency she has led for the past four years. hillary clinton, of course, is not just somebody who came in a very close second to barack obama in trying to win the democratic party's presidential nomination, who then got a high-ranking cabinet post as a consolation prize. no, hillary clinton is really her own thing. her career in public life, in public office is unlike anybody else in american history. she went from being an accomplished lawyer in her early career to being the first lady of arkansas. she then became a very high profile first l
reform and taxes beyond the top clinton rate. so i think to say the democrats are operating at a higher proficiency level at the moment politically that's true, how long that lasts is the question. and without -- it's interesting because their fates are linked. if the republicans don't play a partnership role as you were saying to find some common ground, then i think the whole system once again is going to become evermore dysfunctional in the eyes of the voters. >> can it get more dysfunctional? there have been many iterations of cantor. on immigration, he backs the path to citizenship on some. on guns, he wants to improve current back joupd checks but is inconclusive as far as fight tightening or increasing an expansion of background checks. and he tries to shift the conversation away from fiscal policy because i think cantor understands, and perhaps correctly so, that republicans don't care about the american electorate or middle class, they just care about cutting taxes. so he wants this kinder friendlier gop message. the problem is there are still the people in -- there are still t
it probably should. this administration has shown itself to rely on drones and technology. hillary clinton mentioned this was a problem at the state department. we can bet it was a problem at the defense department. but this administration wants to put its faith there. we need manpower. in reality we still spend more than anyone else. but with iran heating up i don't think it's wise for us to be cutting back there. martha: how much of this is p.r. for lack of a better word in terms of alarming people. if you don't come to some sort of deal in washington you will see and hear more about losing presence in areas like the persian gulf? >> i think have much so. you have got republicans want to go pull back on sequestration. you have got the democrats wanting to. i think this is posturing for the white house trying to show republicans who are ostensibly the pro-defense party, we are going to make cutbacks in areas you don't want to cutback if the sequestration doesn't go through. martha: defense is one of the most important parts of the budget. if the see questionser kicks in is it an across th

words that people could hear. now, we have a case you have a love fest with obama and clinton and then the media they are about as giddy as steve kroft was. >> love fest. in a require a joint interview has everyone reading the tea leaves. >> from the moment they sat down to talk with cbs news 60 minutes president obama and secretary clinton seemed like they had been the best of friends for decades. >> they were side by side, chuckling together. even finishing one another's sentences. >> my take on this, i covered the campaign. i covered it to the bitter end. there was no love between the two of them. i have never seen them do like this. >> benghazi, libya, egypt, iraq, afghanistan, failure -- it's so cute? i get teary eyes. >> let me give you a back story. here is what is going on. hillary clinton has been the darling of the press since he first emerged on the national scene around 1990. she believed and she had every reason to believe that she was going to have the media's blessing in 2008. then they found someone they liked even more. they put her aside and went behind obama
works for a speaker on politics like a reelected president -- barack obama, bill clinton -- that means continuity rather than change. but as far as speaking itself, i enjoy it. i enjoy the challenge. you are walking into a room full of strangers. you have never met them, they have never laid eyes on you, they may have seen you on television in passing or whatever -- within an hour, they walk out with some sense of you. 45 minutes to make them think, make them laugh. that is the highest praise you can get, is somebody coming up and saying, you made me think and made me laugh. that is high praise for me as a speaker. >> let's lay down the basics for mark shields -- born where? wax massachusetts, may 25, 1930 seven. >> parents did what? >> my dad was a paper salesman, involved in the town, government and politics. my mother had been a schoolteacher but at that time when schoolteachers married they could no longer -- they were stained women or something of the sort, because they no longer could teach in the public schools of massachusetts as a married woman. so she was a mother and homemak
, a political development that might lead you to believe hillary clinton is running in 2016. >>> that is not exactly what we were looking for right there. we were looking for hillary clinton in the departure from the state department yesterday. and her parting words there were to the staffers which ended her four years as secretary of state yesterday. just before john kerry was sworn in to succeed her. as she moves on, "newsweek" proclaims clinton the most powerful woman in american history. in the digital cover story the reporter says "she has shown that women can wield official power and can do so with moral force equal to and in some ways greater than men." well, hillary:ton may become more powerful yet, at least in the hopes of my next guest. just 13 days into president obama's second term and 1,375 days from the 2016 election, two superpacs have already formed to support hillary clinton's potential campaign. and joining me now is the coe founder of the ready for hillary superpac and a member of clinton's 2008 virginia steering committee. thanks for being with me. >> i'm
with the consequences -- consequences of those decisions. the global jihadist threat that secretary clinton pointed out does not have the belief that a democracy is a good idea. that a people electing representatives in a republican form of government is a good idea. they believed that we need some religious leader like the ayatollah khomeini or now in iran. they need a religious leader like that that tells us what we can do, that makes all his decisions under shari'a law. . all of those who met during the revolution, they believed in the power of prayer to god, and that's why they prayed during that time, but they wanted much to have the chance to worship as they chose. be they muslim, hindu. but especially judeo-christian beliefs where jews and christians had traditionally suffered so much persecution. they wanted the chance for people to worship as they please or not worship, but they knew to make that possible had he had to -- they had to pray to god. that's why we are observing once again tomorrow the national prayer breakfast where our president will speak, where we will have a fantastic testimon

bill clinton signed into law the family and medical leave act. you know, there are many laws that we pass here in washington that most americans never have reason to know or care about. the fmla, by contrast, has changed this country in profoundly important ways. it has touched the lives of millions of working families. it's almost hard to imagine today but 20 years ago, before this landmark law, workers had to risk their jobs and their livelihoods when family needs arose. there was no national policy for maternity leave or paternity leave. new mothers were sometimes compelled to return to work just days after giving birth. or to quit jobs they would otherwise have liked to keep. there was no law allowing someone to take leave from work to care for an aging, potentially dying parent or to care for a child with a serious illness. families had to leave their loved ones in the hands of others or quit their jobs and face dire economic consequences. there was no policy to allow a seriously ill worker to return to work after recovering from cancer or other serious health condition. all of
of state hillary clinton recently issued a stern warning in her testimony before the house and senate committees responsible for oversight of u.s. foreign policy. she referred repeatedly to the need for our country to recognize and respond to what she called a, quote, global jihadist threat. mr. speaker, rarely have i agreed more with secretary clinton. yet mrs. clinton has been worried about this threat before now. she has done an impressive job of concealing it. the same is true of the obama stad ad administration more generally -- obama administration more generally. for the past four years the executive branch has gone to extraordinary lengths to obscure the danger posed by those who practice holy war or jihad against our country. the administration has also sought to silence and in some cases punish those who have spoken the trute about this menace. -- the truth about this menace. mr. speaker, i welcome the secretary's warning, belater though it may be. however, it would have served this country and the cause of freedom far more if she would have so openly and to have led encount
with secretary albright, as i do with the clinton administration in support of israel. >> in general at that time under the clinton administration, the you think that they were "and going way too far toward israel in the middle east peace process"? >> no, i do not, because i was very supportive of what the president did at the end of his term. in january of 2001, in fact, i recount that in my book. >> just to clarify, that is the sort of flip-flopper but i am talking about. that is what you said then, and you are changing you -- your mind now. >> that is not a flip-flop. i do not recall everything i have said in the past 25 years. if i could go back and change some of it, i would. but it does not discount the support i have always given israel and continue to give israel. >> and going to what you said today talking about iran as "legitimate elected government" you think that the election of this iranian government coming to power was free, fair, and legitimate? >> i noted the term "legitimate" was not the term i should have used. i should have used recognized. that is the more appropriate term. i

. the former clinton adviser and current g.o.p. mynah bird is losing his commentator job on fox news? why? because maybe he said mitt romney would win the election by at least four percentage points. that republicans would take back the senate. that donald trump and mike huckabee would run for president president. if you were watching fox news, wasn't lack of realism part of your job? according to a new poll, only 41% of viewers even trust fox any more. that's a new low. and they also said that they trusted fox over other news outlets. so dick morris is out. sarah palin is out but they're keeping karl rove, maybe because he's declaring war on unelectable wing-nut conservatives. let's welcome tonight's panel of none experts. pete dominick host of stand up with pete dominick and sirius xms potus politics. and tina dupuy syndicated columnist, and actor comedian sherrod small. is fox news' facial reconstruction going to work? >> no, they'll continue to do well and get great ratings because if your model is scaring people the hell out of people. stay tune to find out what you need to know abo

of the senators sent a letter to president clinton for reaffirming our solidarity with israel. i carried that their around. -- letter around. i remember it well. senator hagel is one of just four who refused to sign that letter. i am sure he will want to comment on that. in 2001, he was one of just two senators voting against the bill for extending harsh sanctions against iran. a year later, he urged president bush to support iran's membership in the world trade organization. senator hagel voted against a resolution designating iran's revolutionary guard corps, a group responsible for killing soldiers in iraq and afghanistan, as a terrorist organization. on multiple occasions, he has advocated for direct negotiations with iran, a regime that continues to oppress its people and doggedly pursue a nuclear weapon capability and employ terrorist proxies including hamas and hezbollah. senator hagel has been an outspoken supporter of nuclear disarmament and global zero movement. we are very sensitive to that. the president has said many times that he wants a nuclear- free world, and i know that

as secretary of state. john kerry, of course, will be taking over there from outgoing secretary hillary clinton. john kerry joked today that he had big heels to fill as the new secretary of state. president obama's second major nominee to face a confirmation hearing was another national security pick, the former senator chuck hagel. his confirmation hearings for defense secretary were not a breeze. the vote on his nomination has not yet happened. republicans in the senate are now hinting that they might even filibuster chuck hagel's nomination for defense, which of course sounds normal, because, you know, it seems like republicans filibuster anything now. but in fact that would not be normal that would be unprecedented if they do it. the reason republicans are even considering doing this unprecedented thing is because they cannot block chuck hagel's nomination by normal means. even though the republicans have persuaded lots of the senators on their own side to oppose his nomination, they are a minority. and they have not persuaded any democrats to oppose him at all, at least none that have come
